It is a classic thriller, I watched the movie before I read this book, in a way it spoiled the suspense but it was a good read, I can say I liked it better than the movie. After reading the book I came to know that it is second book in ”Hannibal Lecter” series. I don’t know how well these series are related with each other but I am surely going to read the remaining books in this series.
Hannibal Lecter is a psychologist but he is in jail because of few murder cases. Clarice Starling is main character of the book who is trainee at FBI but she has chosen to work on a series case of serial killer known as ”Buffalo Bill” whose identity is unknown to everyone. His speaciality is to kill the girls and then skin them and throw them in water. Clarice Starling has to take information from Hannibal Lecter because he know him when he was working as a doctor. But Hannibal Lecter loves to play games and act smart. But he agrees to talk to only Clarice Starling. Will she be able to take the information from him? Who is this Buffalo Bill and what is he up to by killing all these ladies?
This book is seriously disturbing so I don’t recommend this book to young adults. Readers will have fun guessing the clues given by Dr. Hannibal Lecter. This is a wonderful book for thriller fans.
